Join us for a three-hour workshop focused on the teaching styles of Chicago improv with professionally trained Improv Actor, Jason Niedbalski.
The tools of improvisational comedy improve communication and collaboration. The process of improv draws on certain time-honored principles - "yes, and" being the first among them. Simply put, "yes, and" means performers accept what their scene partners do or say as part of the reality of the scene. They then build upon that reality with their own contributions. To effectively employ "yes, and" performers must be present in the moment, listen carefully, and contribute positively. Improv concepts can help you confidently embrace the unknown and stimulate creative problem-solving and can enable you to confront the stresses of work and/or personal life with amazing calm and ease. And fun!
Jason's exclusive one-time workshop will focus on listening, finding the relationship, group games, scene work, and how to create characters on the fly.

SEASON SEVEN: CAPTURING HUMANITY
Our seventh season examines the human impulse to control another entity. What drives the desire to replicate humanity? To seize a city? To document the time, the damage, or the impact of a human life? The diverse compilation of plays in Season 7 address these questions and many more through themes of war, technology, art, science, politics, and love.
In a continued effort to promote diversity and gender parity on American stages, we have assembled a season of plays authored by female playwrights, women of color, and LGBTQ artists. By diversifying the voices behind the work we present, RT tells stories of a wider range of individuals that better reflect the world in which we live.
Join us for our 7th year of quality, thought-provoking theatre in the Historic Gryphon Theatre.
